New Tourism Ireland video highlights Dublin and Bloomsday

Tourism Ireland invites people everywhere to celebrate Joyce’s most famous book in the UNESCO City of Literature

Tourism Ireland has unveiled a new online video, titled "Bloomsday in Dublin – a celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses". 

Created to highlight Dublin and our literary heritage to ‘culturally curious’ travellers around the world, the video features places like The James Joyce Centre, Dublin Writers Museum, the James Joyce Tower & Museum and Sweny’s Chemist. It is encouraging prospective visitors to don their finest boater hat and come celebrate Joyce’s most famous book, Ulysses, here in Dublin!
